See audio levels but don't hear

I am seeing audio levels on the screen and I've done a test to prove that audio is being recorded. But, I don't hear audio through the headphones. I have tried a few different pairs so it's not a problem with the headphones.
Any advice?

Record continously skips after 4 or 5 seconds.


You need to apply more pressure to the stylus. This is done by adjusting a weight on the other end of the arm. See your manual for more details.

Getting lidl silvercrest turntable / audacity to transfer records to computer


Assuming you've installed the Audacity software, first check your recording device. If you use Windows, first check the Audio Control Panel. For Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound. Under Sound, click on the Manage Audio Devices link. In that window, click on the Recording tab. Select the USB option and make it the active device.

In Audacity, you may also need to make sure that this is the recording device that is active. That should be the third drop down from the left in the Device Toolbar. (If it isn't visible, click View > Toolbars and check it.) The Device Toolbar is right above the recording trace section in my version of Audacity.

Now click Record (the red circle) and start your turntable. Do you see a change in the trace? You should see a flat line for up to 10 seconds and then see this change to a set of high and low values.

If you don't get this, check if your USB ports are working. If you use a USB hub, try a direct connection. Check the device manager under Universal Serial Bus for a triangle with a red x or a yellow triangle. Try updating the driver by right clicking on the device. Also check Windows Update (for an optional update) or your computer manufacturer site for a new driver.

Unfortunately with the USB, you can't hear the recording as it is made. Do a short recording and then stop it. Then play back the selection. Adjust the input volume level lower if your trace is hitting the top of the box. This is clipping and your recording won't include the full signal from your record.

I've used Audacity for recording cassettes through the line in port. You can do this with some turntables if you add a pre-amplifier and use RCA to 3.5 mm adapter. Connect to the line in on the back of the desktop (blue).

If you could not install Audacity, go to http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ to get a version that works on your computer's OS.

I hope this helps.

I am not able to control the recording level on lower right screen. When I click on it nothing happens.


Maybe your laptop has buttons that control the level also, if so press them.

Most laptops have keystrokes that control the volume level. Normally you will have to Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower right portion of your screen and the corresponding key that takes the volume up. Normally the correct key will show the icon of a megaphone with the )))) volume signal.

More importantly make sure you have the Recording checked in the Audio Sound Properties.

I receieved a pair of Koss SB145 headphones without the instruction manual. It has two connectors and I am clueless how to record things etc..


I suspect that you actually have the Koss multimedia headphone/microphone model SB/45 as shown on the right earcup, not SB145.

If this is the case, the 3.5mm connector with the black plastic (contains a headphone symbol molded into the plastic) and red insulation bands separating the conductors is for the stereo headphones. The other 3.5mm connector with the tan plastic (contains a microphone symbol molded into the plastic) and black insulation bands is for the microphone.

You need to plug these into the microphone input and headphone output connectors on your computer or whatever device you are recording with. Then adjust the microphone input audio level and headphone output audio level on your recording device. Consult your manual for your recording device to locate the correct connectors and for instructions to adjust the audio levels.

Also, be sure to check and adjust the volume level control on the headphone cord if you don't hear anything after correctly connecting them to your recording device and adjusting the levels.

With adobe audition 1.5 how do i get my voice to play back through edit view? Ive really been up all night trying to figure this problem out someone please explain step y step


First, be sure you see the audio track on "edit view". It shows the peak of the recording level. If it is a straight line, you have not recorded your voice. If the recording is there, you have to be sure your computer audio is set to play back through the speakers. If the recording is not there you have to set the computer to record from your input, either line or mic input. Set the level to the max. When you record you can see the input level on the two bars at the bottom of the screen. Double click on them to see the input level before you start recording. You want the level to be near "zero", at the far right. If the level is above "0" the peak indicators will turn red. You don't want red lights. Set the input level just below the red peak. Click on the red record button at the panel on the lower left of the screen. When you click the record button you may see a pop up that want you to set the recording parameters of the file. You have to make these selections before you can record. Once that is done, the record button will show the record position and audio track scroll across the screen. You will also see the level bars respond to the input. When finished recording click the stop button. You should then be able to play back the recording.
There are many adjustment and changes you can make to recorded files. The Adobe help files are very good explaining the features of the software. It is a very powerful audio system. Good luck and have fun with voice and music tracks.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Re-boot the webcam by unplugging and plugging it back in again - Its always good practice to do this before you open MSN. If you have been using your webcam in another program, it can remain hooked up to the old program and you will get an error message " Unable to find webcam or being used elsewhere"

Webcam Connected
Open MSN
Click ( > ) Open Menu >Tools > Audio & Video set-up > Set mic as default and run through audio set-up > Next > set webcam as default and adjust Webcam Settings > Finish

My micriphone attached to headphone seems not to work.


First, make certain that the mic is really broken, by testing it in another application or devise. Sometimes you cannot hear your own voice unless you are in recording mode! If the mic is found to be working, then try to reconfigure the software, or the Yahoo connection. Good Luck!

Skype


Audio Setup for Windows XP and Vista

1. Audio settings, in Windows and Skype

XP: Windows Control Panel / Sounds, Speech and Audio Devices / Sounds & Audio Devices
or Right-click speaker icon in system tray and select "Adjust Audio Properties"

Volume / Device Volume: Make sure “Mute” is NOT checked in this window.
Volume / Device Volume / Advanced: If there is no “Microphone” section in this window, go to Options / Properties and check “Microphone” in the “Playback” list. Then make sure “Mute” IS checked in this window

Audio / Sound Playback: Your on board sound/Sound Card
Audio / Sound Recording: Your on board sound/Sound Card
Audio / Sound Recording / Volume: Make sure "Microphone" is selected and the volume slider is at the center or higher
Audio / Sound Recording / Volume / Advanced: If “Microphone Boost” or “20db Boost” is present, select it


Vista: Windows Control Panel / Hardware and Sound / Sound / Manage Audio Devices
or Right-click speaker icon in system tray and select "Playback devices"

Playback: Your speakers or on board sound/Sound Card must appear in this list, and must show “Working”
Playback: Select your speakers or on board sound/Sound Card, then click “Set Default”
Playback / Properties / General: Device Usage: “Use this device (enable)”
Playback / Properties / Levels: “Mute” is not on, volume slider in the middle

Recording: Your Microphone or on board sound/Sound card must appear in this list, and must show “Working”
Recording: Select your Microphone or on board sound/Sound Card, then click “Set Default”
Recording / Properties / General: Device Usage: “Use this device (enable)”
Recording / Properties / Custom: If “Microphone Boost” is present, select it.
Recording / Properties / Levels: Microphone volume should be centre or higher
Recording / Properties / Levels: If there is a “Mute” button, it must not be on

Skype / Tools / Options / Audio Settings:

Microphone: Your headset/mic or USB device or Web cam mic, as you prefer
Speakers: Your headset, USB device or speakers, as you prefer
Ringing: VoIPVoice USB Phone or on board sound/Sound Card; also tick Ring PC speaker

Note: The audio devices you want to use MUST be present in these Skype device lists. If they are not, check the device connections and driver installations again.

2. Microphone and Speaker connections

Check if your mic (pink) and speaker (lime) jacks are in the proper sockets (it is easy to reverse them) and fully inserted (they sometimes stick only partially inserted)
If your microphone or headset has a “Mute” switch, make sure it is not on
If your speakers or headset has a volume control, make sure it is turned up
For test only you can use an earphone instead of microphone (really)! Just unplug the microphone, plug the earphone into the microphone jack, and talk into your earphones. (I know it sounds silly, but it might tell you if your microphone is defective)
A standard microphone plugged into Line In will NOT work.

3. Check audio in Windows.

XP: Start / All Programs / Accessories / Entertainment / Sound Recorder

Vista: Start [Orb] / All Programs / Accessories / Sound Recorder

Make a short recording with the microphone; you should see the level meters moving as you speak. On Windows XP, you can then play back what you recorded.

4. Once done, test with Skype Test Call (echo123).
